With a full set of upper and lower case letters, the Patchsmith’s applique alphabet offers a fun font for applique plus a star and three hearts. The pattern also includes instructions to create a personalized mug rug perfect for gifting or keeping.
We love the idea of thinking beyond just names, take the opportunity to use the applique alphabet for creating holiday pieces with words like Christmas, thankful, joy, USA, Spring, and more. The options are endless. Gifting a piece with “welcome” would make a beautiful hostess or new homeowner gift.
Make those applique letters shine with hand stitched borders or give some of those specialty stitches on your machine a try. One of our favorite hand stitches for applique is the blanket stitch. Watch the video tutorial to learn how.
Whatever way you applique, we think this applique alphabet will come in handy for marking your quilt, personalizing a t-shirt or zipper pouch, as well as creating one of a kind mug rugs.
